    Heyy!

    Overall I had A grades for my sciences and English but only a B for maths (WJEC)? Is it worth resitting maths just to get one extra grade so all core subjects are on an A grade? I would feel happier if it was, but do you think really necessary to do all that extra work to try and get that A? Many thanks!

    If you're fairly confident that you'll be able to cope with A-levels and the revision at once I'd say go for it, a lot of unis look at your GCSE core subjects when you apply

    I can't see the point at all. Were you very close to an A? If so, you could consider re-taking in November. Otherwise I would forget it.
